I'm a huge fan of Third Coast so a dash of cherry seemed to be OK..... but I feel it was more than OK! The base keeps the old favorites of caramel, toffee, barley, roasted nut, alcohol and toasted bread. The added cherry seems to make this just sweet enough to offset the alcohol and make this easily drinkable.

Savored from the growler via Jungle Jim's Eastgate in a snifter. This FINE
old ale pours a rugged ruby tinged dark brown sugar color with a moderate head
of off white foam that fades to a thin ring, thin light pool, and features light lacing.
Nose of cherries, strong booze, light bourbon notes, brown sugars, and cherries.
Flavors follow but exceed by strength with brown sugars awash in cherries and light bourbon
notes with subtle vanilla and light oak notes blending nicely with fig and date flavors of the
old ale with a touch of prunes and light herbal hops. Excellent mouth feel; warming smooth
medium body, light carbonation, and a sweet caramel dipped cherry finish.

Overall, an excellent old ale.

Of suggestion----might I humbly say an apple and brandy barrel or rum barrel
version would be a nice addition to the family of this fine series of ales.

Cheers
